The Curse of the Were-Rabbit: Fear of a Vegan World

Wallace_gromit_were_rabbit_posterThe Curse of the Were-Rabbit: Fear of a Vegan World” considers Nick Park’s gothic masterpiece as a response to vegetarianism by a meat-eating soul. If the premise of this essay sounds as if I lost my mind briefly while writing it, I probably did. But, I fear, there’s method in this madness. Originally published on Metaphilm February 2006.
